Before you get all worked up at the thought of a free Rebel Blockade Runner you should read on, because it’s for the much smaller version that official LEGO retail outlets in the US and a number of European countries ran build events for during the May The 4th be With You festivities.
While the event is obviously aimed at children, there is no specified age range on the the registration page. The only stipulation is that you must be a R Club member to join in on the fun. Be quick because spaces are filling up very quickly.
Don’t be sad if you can’t make it because the instructions are freely available. None of the parts in this build are unique, and most fans would have these in their LEGO bucket or be able to source them through Bricklink.com.
